Saved my life

1999 Volkswagen Jetta GLS 4dr Sedan (midyear)


About four days ago I was in a head on collision with a Chevy Suburban in a canyon. I walked away with glass shards in my arm and that is it. My friend who was in the passenger seat walked away without a scratch. Even the highway patrolman said the way the car handled the impact is what saved our lives. I loved that car, too bad it is totalled and completely unsalvageable. Thank you Volkswagen for making a car that passengers can feel safe in!

Best Features

Airbags, I also loved the color of the lights in the dash. Had great get-up-and-go. Loved the key, was always a blast to drive. I appreciated the single fold down seat that perfectly fit a couple snowboards!

Worst Features

My antenna got broken off about a year ago. For something so seemingly simple it was a fortune to get fixed for a poor college student! Wish VW dealerships weren't so expensive for repairs.
